Peanut Butter Cup Proats

Peanut Butter Cup Proats

Have you tried the exciting new range of Efectiv Whey Protein flavours yet? A firm favourite has to be Peanut Butter Cup. The intense, nutty flavour mixes brilliantly as a shake, into yoghurt or as per this recipe, into warm oats. Of course, it would be wrong to not top with a Reese's and more peanut butter for a devilishly indulgent, high-protein bowl!

Serves 1


  • 1 scoop (35g) organic rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp (10g) chia seeds
  • 1 medium (80g) carrot, grated
  • 1 scoop (30g) Efectiv whey Peanut Butter Cup protein powder
  • 1 large Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
  • 20g smooth peanut butter


  1. Into a saucepan add the grated carrot, scoop of oats and the chia seeds. Cover with hot water from the kettle. I prefer to do this the night before training, covering the pan with a lid and leaving the ingredients to soak up the water and plump up overnight. It isn't essential but it makes the texture extra creamy and thick!
  2. Warm up on the hob, stirring frequently and adding in a splash more hot water if required. The consistency should be thick and fluffy.
  3. Remove from the heat and add in the scoop of protein powder, stirring until fully combined. Add another splash of water if required to get a texture you're happy with... but make sure it's not too watery - nobody likes sloppy oats! You can add any flavour protein powder you like but for a carrot cake vibe my favourites are salted caramel, cinnamon, vanilla or chocolate.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and top with the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and 20g of peanut butter. Placing on the warm oats and leaving it for a few minutes will cause the chocolate and nut butter to melt, making a luxuriant and decadently delicious high protein treat!
